Oluboi Commodore disagrees with FA’s decision to cancel the league

General Manager of Accra Great Olympics Oluboi Commodore says the decision by the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to cancel the 2019/2020 season isn’t the best.

According to Mr Commodore, he is saddened by the decision to cancel the league.

He further explained that, the league should have been abridged to fomarlise all the results gathered so far because the league had already started and that the pandemic made it difficult for it to continue.

“If the ExCo has cancelled the league in the midst of the Coronavirus, are we going to play the 2020/ 2021 season with or without the pandemic cases still increasing,” he asked on Daily Graphic news.

“It would have been better to abridge the league for all the results to stand and allow the first two teams on top of the league to represent Ghana in the CAF Champions League and the Confederation Cup, so a decision would be taken on clubs who find themselves at the bottom of the table.”

“Clubs have spent money on players and are not getting any benefit from their investment,” he lamented.

The outspoken football administrator also questioned the reason behind the GFA’s decision to expunge all records associated with the season and emphasised that all fines accruing to the teams also needed not be honoured.

“If no records would be available on the 2019/2020 season, it cannot be possible for a club to pay any fine.

“We need to be compensated by the GFA. We have invested a lot of resources for the season and it cannot go waste because the league has been called off,” he stressed.
